Luxury Farmhouse Guest House

Luxury Farmhouse Guest House Classified by Gîtes de France

The Luxury Farmhouse Guesthouse is a wonderful stone farmhouse which was first built in the 14th century. It is situated at the end of a half a mile long mountain lane in five acres of private land.

The whole building has been renovated to a high standard with a touch of modern style and luxury, whilst retaining its traditional heritage and character. There is a large dining room, two different lounge areas (one with a bar and one with a wood stove) and a beautiful sun terrace overlooking the swimming pool with a panoramic view over the Champsaur valley.

There are 9 ensuite bedrooms including one suite. All of them are nicely decorated and furnished to a high standard, and they're all equipped with modern comforts (TV, Wi-Fi).

Jean & Meg are the proud owners of the luxury farmhouse guesthouse and are professional hosts and passionate foodies. They will offer you a very warm welcome to their farmhouse and we highly recommend that you take up their offer of evening meals! They will tease your taste buds with delicately prepared local specialities and a twist of something special! Plus, if you're staying for more than 5 nights, you will be offered champagne and a welcome apéritif upon arrival.

After an active day in the mountains, this really is a wonderful place to stay. Enjoy a drink on the terrace, relax in the jacuzzi or cool off in the pool before sitting down to enjoy a sociable evening with delicious food. On Saturdays, you may even have a private concert for dessert!

The property is ideally located outside of the hamlet of Chabottes, at an altitude of 1150 meters and right in the heart of the beautiful Champsaur valley on the southern border of the Ecrins National Park. It is perfect for a summer activity holiday in the warm months with hiking, biking, climbing, canyoning, Via Ferrata, paragliding, rafting, horse riding and more activities within a few miles. In winter, you are surrounded by 5 skis villages as well as a full range of other winter activities like ice climbing, cross country skiing, husky sledding... and much more!
